Overwatch League 2020 Predictions – Entering the Week 4

Published on: 07/02/2020

The 8th of February marks the begging of the Overwatch League 2020 season. Following recent format changes, each week two new teams will host a Homestead weekend in their arenas with teams engaging in a Home/Away competitive cycle.

Part of our yearly Overwatch League betting calendar consists of analyzing and creating the best picks and predictions for each week of competitive play. Starting with 2020, we are going to observe and moderate our Weekly Predictions in a single article with consistent updates for each week of competitive play.

We have already observed the off-season and created our Overwatch League power rankings and Best Overwatch Team and Player selection. What remains for us to do is predict the outcomes on each matchup week upon week until the end of the season.

Hopefully, by the end of it all, we will have an accurate prediction rate of over 95%.
